It’s crazy how the year has flown by, I hope you guys are doing great today and are filled with God’s grace and favor!
Today I want to share three things that I am blessed to have. On Sunday, my pastor preached on thankful-ness and I felt the spirit of thankful-ness drop in the whole place. I felt such gratitude and such a sense of grounding after this message. So here are the things I reflected on and the things that I am thankful for.
- I am thankful for life itself: The fact that I am alive today means God has a future and hope for my life. He has a calling and a purpose for my life. The fact that I am still breathing and able to function with every fiber in my body. The fact that I didn’t die in a car accident, the fact that my organs and bones are still fully functioning. That I am taking a deep breath in and out. It means God is still working and is not done in my life! And he is not done in yours either!! Praise God!
2. I am thankful for hard seasons: Times where I feel like throwing in the towel, times where I feel depressed, angry, hopeless, bitterness, sorrowful, upset, and lost in my situation. Because I feel like the Lord uses those opportunities to reveal merry-go-rounds in my life. Those rides that spin over and over until you get off the ride or the ride stops. Or insanity which in definition means doing the same thing over and over expecting a change. Whether it’s the same attitude day by day, the same hopeless feeling, or the same anger every day. I believe the Lord uses those moments and those emotions to reveal something deep in us. A yearning for him, a yearning for change.
3. I am thankful for the opportunity to change: To change my mind.
Romans 8:6 (ESV) says: 6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Colossians 3:2 (ESV): 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Romans 12:2 (NKJV): 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
I am thankful that God gives me the opportunity to change my attitude, bad habits, and most of all allow me to Repent for my sins and all the things that hold me captive from the will of God in my life.
I am so thankful soo so thankful!
